LOVE THE LAND: A VIRTUAL BENEFIT CONCERT FOR LOCAL FARMS

Local farmers, the stewards of our land, are at the heart of our food system. And yet, the barriers that they face are staggering, especially for marginalized growers. From finding and affording land to keeping it productive and resilient in the face of climate change, local farmers need our support now more than ever.

That’s why Viva Farms is teaming up with Washington Farmland Trust for the second year in a row on a collaborative fundraising event: Love the Land. Our organizations have a long history of making land available for farming and connecting farmers with the resources that they need. Through our strategic partnership, we have leveraged our collective expertise to protect farmland to serve as training ground for future food growers, and connect farmers to land opportunities through the Farm to Farmer program.

Together we are aiming to raise $300,000 through Love the Land to sustain the work of our organizations. The effort will kick off with an online peer-to-peer fundraising campaign and culminate in a virtual benefit concert featuring words from organizational leaders, testimonials from farmers and luminaries, and musical performances by local artists soon to be announced.

With your support, we believe we can grow a more sustainable, equitable, and resilient food system that works for all of Washington. Join us. Learn more here.
